Bug#1329: ncurses manpages - two infelicities
Package: ncurses-runtime, ncurses-developer
The capability table in terminfo(5) is badly formatted:
Variable Cap- I. Description
Booleans name Code
auto_left_margin, bw bw cub1 wraps from column 0 to last
auto_right_margin, am am Terminal has automatic margins
back_color_erase, bce ut screen erased with background color
can_change, ccc cc terminal can re-define existing colors
ceol_standout_glitch, xhp xs Standout not erased by overwriting
(It continues in the same vein).
ncurses(3ncurses) contains the following:
Windows are referred to by variables declared as WINDOW *.
These data structures are manipulated with routines
described on 3X pages (whose names begin ""). Among which
the most basic routines are move and addch. More general
versions of these routines are included with names begin-
ning with w, allowing the user to specify a window. The
routines not beginning with w affect stdscr.)
This does not reflect the manpage arrangement in Debian - we have the
manpages as foo(3ncurses) rather than curs_foo(3x).
